Getting Your Skills Honed
Successful coaching businesses are made up of equal amounts of 2 different skill sets. Coaching (the delivery half of your business) and the business of coaching (the business development skills that create the opportunities to do the delivery).  Coaches need both. Coaches tend to love the delivery half, but are fearful of the other skillset. This podcast looks at why you really, really don't need to be anxious about business development.

Why Mentoring Makes All The Difference
Coaches have a knowledge gap around marketing. They simply don't know how to be effective at it. What that means is that you cannot be coached to success - coaching cannot fill a knowledge gap. Mentoring on the other hand, particularly when delivered by qualified coaches, does fill the knowledge gap. In this episode, we talk about how and why that's the case.
